This doctor has a chip on his shoulder. He is a control freak and believes his way or no way is the answer. He is very condescending and provides alternate forms of pain management that when proved unsuccessful, blames the patient for their failure to provide positive results. In my opinion, there are far better M.D.'s located close by that can provide you with superior healthcare. He has little experience, and it shows.
